I have some pretty fond memories of Burger Time, killing time in the middle school computer lab after I finished the ridiculously remedial typing tutor assignments. If you're a nostalgia junkie like me then you'll probably be thrilled to see Peter Pepper on Xbox Live in Burger Time World Tour, doing what he does by jumping on burger ingredients to combine them into the perfect fast food sandwich. The game seems a little dear to me at 800 MS points but I'm probably going to pay it anyway just to see Peter Pepper decked out in HD, pixel-shaded textures.
